It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. Maybe that's what you expect from a hostel with 5 other people. However, the sink did not work properly, as well as the bath which was clogged. It was really discusting to shower and having only 5 minutes only before the water would overflow.It is located in a secure place, close to the street car stop (20 minutes from the french quarter).The wifi is really bad though. You have to be close to the mainhouse to get a bit, don't expect to have some in your bed.

If youare looking for a cheap hostel, this is the best place. It takes about 20min from here to Bourbon street by street car. The manager is very helpful. Enjoy your stay in New Orleans!
Amazing location right next to the Charles streetcar. Cleanliness could be improved though.
This hostel is basic. It was clean and the personal was very nice. There were no lockers and the doors use just a key. Its oka for a weekend.
I spent two nights in a female dorm. A dumb knocked at my door from 3am to 4am the first night then the fire alarm rang for nothing on the 2nd night. Well I guess it explains the price. If you have the choice, go somewhere else for few extra dollars. The only good point was the location: next to the tram and close to Magazine St.
I can understand that since hurricane Katrina housekeeping has be scare, but the bathroom in my dorm was pretty bad, I cleaned part of it up. Security- actual hostel security was fine, but no lockers in the dorms, depends on your level of trust with people but I nor anyone else there at the time had any issues. Lots of locals living there which gives it a homely feel once you know them.
A fine place to put a hostel...and the price was right. I even liked the yard. But the WiFi was NONEXISTENT. There was a trickle of signal in the lobby, but you WON'T be able to use it in your room. I call that false advertising. Ended up going to the local bar, they had WiFi that WORKED.
The Marquette House is an affordable and fun way to visit New Orleans! I arrived late at night, but after a quick call to the late-night attendant, Dana, I was able to be checked in quickly. though I had booked a bed in one dorm, and my friends booked beds in another, Dana offered to room us all together at no extra charge, which was great. room was clean and well-equipped. As a 6'2'', 250 lb male, I would recommend a bottom bunk, as the beds are a little shaky; however, the mattresses are comfy

The staff was very accomodating. Though there were four of us, one guy and three girls, we had originally booked beds in the dorms to be more cost effective. The staff was so generous as to offer us a room that we four could share, with our own mini kitchen and bathroom. I really enjoyed our stay. It was very well located, just a couple blocks from the street car and I felt very comfortable and safe.
